For Sale: 1985 Mercedes-Benz 280SL in Naarden, Noord Holland

Vehicle Description

The Mercedes SL280 R107, sporty, light, but with a solid luxury that only our eastern neighbours understand. The new SL was introduced in 1971 and was a huge selling success right from the start. This was not necessarily very logical.
At the time, the car was more expensive than a Ferrari 246GT Dino, and twice as expensive as the Jaguar E-type. Of course, the car had a lot of depreciation at the time, but in recent years it has proven to be a good investment. We at the Cool Classic Club actually love these cars, because they tick so many boxes. Perfect 6-in-line, beautiful chrome, seventies interior design, enough space and super reliable technique. A modern driving feel while driving around in a seventies icon. Just the way you want it. This is a 1985, Florida delivered EU spec 280SL. These Americans didn't fancy all the hassle so they ordered a European version. The car stayed with the same owner until 2015 before ending up on Dutch soil. There, the owner restored the car to its former glory for over 6,000 euros, and because of this, the car drives exceptionally well. We really don't see them like that very often. Can it get any better? Yes, definitely! This is one of the last models produced and therefore equipped with all the latest developments. Simply put, a classic car with the driving characteristics of a youngtimer. Not to mention the colour... Can we see you soon?
